                                                Is this an update to a previous ESDS checklist?

   INSTRUCTIONS: Insert the appropriate number of optional points you are claiming AND indicate with an X all the
   mandatory criteria that apply to your project in the point column. Enter N/A if the criterion does not apply to your
   project. Except for criteria where there is a range of points offered, there is no graduated point allowance for less than
   full compliance with any given criterion. New construction projects must achieve 50 points and rehab projects must
   achieve 40 points. If your project receives an allocation of tax credits, you will need to submit an Evergreen Project
   Plan documenting how each applicable Evergreen feature has been constructed or implemented along with the placed-
   in-service documentation for the project. To successfully understand and fill out this checklist, you will need to refer
   directly to the Evergreen Criteria. Do not change any words or formatting on this form.


                Criteria that apply to both New Construction and Rehab:
                                Criteria that apply to Rehabilitation Only:
